The economy in War Thunder consists of 2 currencies, silver lions and golden eagles, as well as research points and convertable research points.
Silver lions are the main War Thunder currency, used in-game to purchase new crew slots, aircraft and modifications, as well as repairing damaged aircraft and purchasing ammunition and ordnance. These can be earned by playing games and destroying enemies and ground units, achieving kill assists, completing single missions and from battle trophies. With a premium account, players will earn an increased amount of silver lions per battle, helping to speed up their advancement through nations' aircraft and ground unit trees. Golden eagles can also be converted in to silver lions if a player is running low and needs some quickly.
Golden Eagles are an in-game currency, which can be spent on a Premium account and other additional content: premium machines, faster crew development, additional places in a hangar, and reserve airplanes. They can also be exchanged to another in-game currency — Silver Lions.
Research points are used for researching new aircraft and ground units in War Thunder. These are earned in a similar way to silver lions - by playing games and achieving air and ground unit kills, and by achieving kill assists. Like with silver lions, research point gain can be increased by purchasing premium account time, to help players unlock their desired aircraft and ground units faster.
